I don’t know when I’ve had a more fun Labor Day, which is the annual Holiday At Home here in Kettering.
By 8:00 AM I was at the corner of Delaine & Rockhill to take photographs of those admirable souls running the 5K.
9:30 AM, Angela Bane and her four year old son, Noah, pulled up in the driveway, and together we walked across the high school’s backfield to watch the parade. This is the 7th H@H parade I’ve watched with the Bane family. Normally, my Bane students, Jacob (8th grade), Ellie (now 7th grade), and their dad are a part of this party, but everyone was spread out for the morning events.
This year, my student, Gwen, and her family, were right next to us, and that made for a super parade morning with the Banes and Stampers.
I rushed home, and hurried over to a brunch at David & Paulette Flaum’s beautiful home. They are the grandparents of my student, Ethan, and his sister, a former student now in college, Savannah. It was so great to spend time with Emily, the Webbs and all their family. A delicious brunch, and a wonderful time chatting with the family. What a super time!
And I am so glad I got to see Savannah, and her boyfriend, Alec who were home from Hocking Hills College.
Now, it is 2:07 PM, and I begin teaching in 8 minutes. The end of my favorite weekend has arrived, and I could not have asked for a better weekend. I think my furry trio is pleased I am home for a longer spell!
